I have many friends of various Christian denominations who see the anti-racist agenda as essential to their faith. Indeed, when I was a Christian, I frequently heard anti-racist messages from the pulpit as well as in the social justice work within the congregation.

All denominations include some congregations that have turned their back on the Gospel to support the status quo of privilege. In some denominations, especially ones that call themselves fundamentalist and/or evangelical, nearly every congregation is that way.

I left the Christian church about 10 years ago and now caucus with the Unitarian Universalists. But I cannot condemn all Christians, or even all white American ones. Many do still keep the faith.
